* {{Flanderization}}: In the movies, the only thing Rico ever spits up is a paper clip. Somehow, this got magnified to him being a StomachOfHolding. [[TropesAreNotBad Not that this is a bad thing]] - on the contrary it's hilarious.
** Admittedly in the second movie Rico does start pulling other things - like a switchblade, for example - out of nowhere, and then putting them away again, and regurgitation is as good a reason as any. But nothing particuarly lol-worthy comes up - it's still majorly flanderised.
*** A promo for the third movie has him smoothly vomiting up a match. Maybe they are starting to take cues from the show?

* StomachOfHolding: Exaggerated; he can spit up almost ''anything'' he or the other penguins need, and he can swallow almost anything and regurgitate it for later use. He has coughed up things ranging from grenades and TNT, to an Ait-To-Ground missile and platform. In one episode he has to eat Mort... while in another, he ends up eating ''Kowalski.''

* ManlyGay: Rico's Miss Perky doll was ditched about halfway through season 1, and he has the most instances of attraction to other male characters while having no female relationships set up even as a gag. Since homosexuality is usually associated with femininity, it's funny to see the most violent, aggressive male show the most signs of homosexuality.
